This research is based on a survey given to surrounding middle school choir teachers regarding if their choir is a class or not in their district. The study looks into the benefits of having choir during the day and as a graded class. The study also analyzes school schedules and how they affect choir during the day. Choral advocacy is addressed and suggestions are given for how to grow a program that isn’t a class; which is the current problem at my school. This study also addresses how choir directors can gain more choral advocacy in their district and increase enrollment in their program if it’s extracurricular. My research results demonstrate that if choir is a class during the day, then enrollment will increase. My research results also highlighted that a new schedule would be needed in order for my school district to do this successfully.
